Some time in the 2nd to 3rd quarter of 2018. The Mother Ship can be none to happy about this move even if its the Retailors eating the deficit.
It is just retailer specific.
AMD isn't doing anything here, it's just mainly Amazon.
They reduced the price in the UK more than likely due to exchange rates and they got more money from the initial hype train buyers.
Death is just another path, one that we all must take.
The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back,
And all turns to silver glass, and then you see it...
White shores, and beyond,
A far green country under a swift sunrise.
